Interview: The Elysian Shadows Team

For those that do not know, Elysian Shadows is a new, upcoming, role playing game that is being built from scratch, no pre-built engine is being used here.  The interesting thing about ES is that it is going to be playable, at the behest of the player, in 2D or 3D- interchangeable on the fly.  Some key points to keep in mind about ES is that it is being published by Watermelon Corps (Piers Solar anyone?) and is coming to a plethora of platforms.  Soon, Elysian Shadows will be on Kickstarter with stretch goals covering a myriad of platforms.

Kickstarter: Mighty Tactical Shooter Successfully Funded

Fans of 16-Bit style shooters will want to read up on Mighty Tactical Shooter. As of this writing, there is still time to throw more cash at it on Kickstarter, even though it is successfully funded already. Reminiscent of the Thunder Force series or Gradius from Konami, Mighty Tactical Shooter also mixes in turn based strategy elements. Weird sounding, sure but it works somehow.

New Game: Death Race Ported to Magnavox Odyssey 2

Anyone that has done any real amount of research into the early days of gaming will, at least, have heard something about a game called Death Race. Death Race was very controversial back in the late 70′s. Exidy only created 500, or so, cabinets which makes the arcade unit quite a collector’s item.

Angry Birds Sega Genesis

Bandit Gaming: Angry Birds Cross onto the Sega Genesis

Angry Birds is one of those games that has transcended gaming and brought in non-gamers much like Myst did in the mid 90′s. What started out as a mobile game, that was as casual as you probably could get, has been ported to home consoles including the Sega Genesis.

Hardware Hack: Working Dreamcast Hard Drive

The Sega Dreamcast is a console that probably has had the most new games, new hardware interfaces, hacks, etc released for it after it was commercially dead. Take this new hack for instance, a hard drive interface. One that really works. Read on for more information.

Flash Cartridge for Mattel Intellivision Coming

The Mattel Intellivision was not exactly a household name when it was new, certainly not now, but that has not stopped indie developer, Left Turn Only, from creating a flash cart for the console. The kicker is, this flash cart is big enough, 32 megs, to hold the ENTIRE Mattel Intellivision library of games.

Twin Tiger Shark Windows overhead shooter retro

New Game: Twin Tiger Shark for Windows Released

Retro gaming fans probably know the 16-Bit shooter world quite well with titles such as Raiden, Space Megaforce, the Thunder Force series, Axelay and many more. The old saying, they just don’t make them like that anymore comes to mind as I struggle to think of very many recent titles that hearken back to those days. Mikael Tillander has worked to remedy that greavious mistake in current gaming with the release of Twin Tiger Shark for Windows. It is free by the way.

Bandit Gaming: Harry Potter Turned into 3D Pac-Man on Sega Genesis

Continuing our coverage of pirate games (yesterday it was Super Mario 4 on the Sega Genesis), I bring you Harry Potter for the Genesis. The kicker here is, the Harry Potter universe has been retrofitted onto a 3D Pac-Man style game, similar to Pac-Mania from Tengen.

OpenBOR: Marvel First Alliance 2 Released

We are continuing to cover the more interesting OpenBOR releases and with that we bring you Marvel First Alliance 2. Brazilian developer Zvitor has really put the spit and polish to this one, just check out the video below for proof of this labor of love.

Super Mario  4- Space Odyssey Sega Genesis

Bandit Gaming: Super Mario 4: Space Odyssey for Sega Genesis

It is no secret that Mario and company never were able to grace the Sega Genesis platform, officially. That has not stopped fans from making unofficial adventures with Nintendo’s favorite Italian plumber available. Take Super Mario 4: Space Odyseey for example, this is a Russian pirate game and looks pretty decent.
